Quest for the Best Pilot Ever (episodes #2-12)
Welcome to a very special episode of Pilots and Petards Podcast where today we will rank the previous pilots reviewed and analyzed. This week Mo is out pursuing her scholarly duties, so Jimbo and Drew look back to rank and discover the best and worst pilot episodes.
- Only pilot episodes are taken into account. In the case of a tie, the tiebreaker will go to the most successful series.
- The following criteria influence the hoisters: storytelling, entertainment, and of course nostalgia. Personal preferences are key, but your hoisters tried to sort these shows objectively.
- Pilot episodes started at the bottom of the barrel with the unanimous hoists. From there Drew and Jimbo worked their way up to the unanimous Not Hoists.
